Rock Pools

Fish, water and tide,
Starfish always hide.
I step on the sea snails in their shells,
I see them use the rocks like stairwells.
I reach in the water hoping nothing will bite,
Then I see something red and jump with fright.
The coral is bright and colourful,
The sun shines and makes it look wonderful.
Crabs scatter and hide under rocks,
I spot a man fishing on the docks.
